LANSING, Mich. — The Lansing area’s annual celebration of peace and justice, or PeaceQuest, is officially underway for the entire month of September with in-person and virtual events.
PeaceQuest is a community-wide celebration with a mission to celebrate the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, which was declared by the UN General Assembly on Sept. 21, 1981.
PeaceQuest Greater Lansing is coodinated by Greater Lansing United Nations Association and is one of more than 200 local chapters of UNA-USA, in partnership with local organizations and individuals.
Events are hosted by many local organizations that promote peace and justice, including the Peace Education Center, faith communities, NGO’s and others. All events are related to peace in some way.
A few events include:
Culver’s restaurants will also host two fundraising events.
An event on Sept. 6 at the Culver’s at 8848 West Saginaw in Lansing will raise funds for UNICEF. On Sept. 19, Culver’s located at 5140 Times Square Place in Okemos will host a fundraiser for the Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk. Both events are from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
